Tracey Humphreys, Telford Office Manager for Lucy Allan MP, was last night announced as the runner up in the Constituency Office manager category of the prestigious Parliamentary Staffer of the Year awards.
The awards, hosted by the Speaker at Speaker's House at the Houses of Parliament, were well-attended by staff and Parliamentarians alike, with Tracey coming second to the Office Manager of the late Sir David Amess MP.
Tracey Humphreys, who lives in St George’s Telford, said;
I have worked for Lucy for over 7 years in Telford. Helping constituents and engaging in community issues has been some of the most challenging and rewarding work I have ever done.
I am honoured to be recognised in this way. I am supported in Telford by my wonderful colleague Jayne and we have been working flat out this year to ensure that those who need help always have somewhere to seek advice and support.
It has been a great pleasure supporting and working with Lucy on all her different campaigns and projects. I was so pleased to attend the awards ceremony in London. I met Theresa May and Sir Lindsay Hoyle MP, who was lovely.
Lucy Allan MP said:
I am delighted that Tracey has been recognised by this award. It reflects the incredibly varied often difficult work she has done, including work with people affected by injustices and scandals. She has been recognised specifically for her work with CSE victims seeking justice, women affected by the maternity scandal at Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital and those affected by the Post Office Horizon Scandal.
The day to day personal touch Tracey gives to constituents, who often have nowhere else to turn is incredibly heart warming. Tracey has helped many Afghan and Ukrainian refugees and is currently busy assisting residents with the cost-of-living crisis and accessing healthcare which are major issues people are facing.
MP’s constituency staff are vital part of the work MPs do. I am delighted to see this award recognising the work of my team who work so hard to help residents in Telford."
